From http://www.iangilman.com/software/ishido.php: Ishido was my first commercial software project, a contemplative solitaire game played with tiles. Michael Feinberg designed it and Brad Fregger , the producer, was nice enough to take a chance on me, an untried 17 year-old, to program it. I ended up contributing much more than just programming to the game, and I'm still quite proud of it. Near the end of development, the publisher (Epyx) suddenly went bankrupt. Undaunted, we took the game and...

MacWrite was a WYSIWYG word processor application released along with the first Apple Macintosh systems in 1984. Together with MacPaint, it was one of the two original "killer applications" that propelled the adoption and popularity of the GUI in general, and the Mac in particular. When the Mac was first being created, it was clear that users would interact with it differently from other personal computers. Typical computers of the era booted into text-only DOS or BASIC command line...

The 1994 John Calhoun game, and a collection of user-made level packs ('houses'). The Houses folder contains these houses and any documentation and other files they may have. Note: the Load House function in-game may not display all available houses; each can be loaded from outside the game by browsing to them and opening them directly, running the game that way.
